Sunshine is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its Local Government Area is the City of Brimbank. The locality was originally known as Braybrook Junction, until 1907, when residents petitioned the council to change the name to Sunshine, in honour of the Sunshine Harvester company, which employed many residents.
The Sunshine Harvester Company was a manufacturing powerhouse of its time and industrial disputation between the owner H V McKay and workers, led to the Harvester Judgement which as an Australian benchmark industrial decision which led to the creation of a minimum living wage for workers.
Sunshine was originally an industrial suburb but this has now changed due to re-development. The suburb contains two shopping centres, Sunshine Marketplace and Sunshine Plaza, the former including a major cinema complex, and many shopping strips.
Sunshine is one of the poorest socio-economic communities in Melbourne, with a large number of Housing Commission in the area.
